I had just received a brand new job in San Diego and had no place to live. Comicon was in town and I was up against it with finding a place to stay. I lucked out with Carole's because this has been a dream come true. Not only have I been welcomed like family but I have been comfortable, all... More

Carole´s bed and breakfast is fully recommendable, very comfortable, in a very nice neighborhood, quiet, and with fantastic personalized attention. Breakfast were always at a high level, plus a nice pool and free to use WIFI, definitively a perfect place to stay.

We had a wonderful time at Carole's Bed and Breakfast. With it being my first time to San Diego, I had to choose between a hotel and a bed and breakfast. I most definitely made the right decision!! It is a cozy cottage in a beautiful setting. We were treated like family and Carole went out of her way to... More

We spent four wonderful nights at Carole's Bed and Breakfast! Staying in the charming cottage called "Casita" gave us a living room, kitchen, and bedroom ... a very short walk from the main house and our great breakfasts! Carole and Michael invited our adult daughter, who had just moved to San Diego, to eat breakfast with us whenever she could... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed for 4 days and 3 nights and it was great. Carole was wonderful and very inviting. Michael cooked a mean breakfast and something different every morning. It was close to North park, Balboa Park, and downtown San Diego. I couldn't of asked for much more. What a pleasure it was.

My husband and I felt we went back in time in this cozy, craftsman style home! Carole was a warm and gracious hostess and went out of her way to suggest places to eat and things to do within walking distance. The living room walls were filled with family pictures of many generations. Our Rose Room opened onto a private... More

The room itself was nice. The bed was firm, but comfortable. I felt like I was in my own house which was nice. Carole and Michael were both very nice. Breakfasts were pretty good. Definitely a step up from an hotel, but nothing to write home about. Location was great. Very close to Balboa Park and easy access to the... More

We had a very pleasant stay at Carole's Bed and Breakfast Inn. She is lovely, helpful and delightful to talk with but not intrusive. The Inn is located in a beautiful part of San Diego that is great for walking. There are a number of excellent restaurants within walking distance. We hope to go back soon.

Carole's Bed and Breakfast, located in the North Park section of San Diego is a real "find". In fact I have stayed at Carole's twice . I found Carole's has all necessary ingredients to provide a comfortable stay. My room was quiet, spotlessly clean and included several thick towels and a comfy bed. There are quiet places to sit outside... More

We stayed at Carole's bed and breakfast during the first week of January. The studio was perfect for us - a spacious room with a king-sized bed, couch, chairs, coffee table in a sitting area, and a small kitchen area. When we arrived our host Carole made us feel comfortable and welcome. We made a special request and it was... More
